Hi everyone!!! Hope you are all enjoying your long Holiday Weekend! I love these long holiday weekends that we all get to spend time with family and pay tribute to all of our countries Hero’s. Along with Memorial Day weekend celebrations and remembering comes Memorial Day Sales! I know super unpatriotic but I am a struggling nursing student and I need to save a penny where ever I can. So I rounded up my current wish list of items from the amazing Half Yearly Sale from my friends at Nordstrom that I think would just be perfect for summer. I hope you all enjoy and I have been loving all the posts on instagram and twitter of everyones picks! Talk to you all soon!

Shelter Island by Bond No.9

IMG_9897

One of the many things I love about a change of season is switching up fragrances. It is no secret that I love perfume and especially when it comes to Bond No.9 scents. The newest addition to their line is Shelter Island which is quickly becoming my go to daily scent (Sorry Central Park South!) First I have to say that I was immediately loving the bottle, I am a huge stripes fan and usually find myself gravitating to them either when shopping or just getting dressed in the morning. Being that this new scent embodies the chic and laid back essence of a summer on the Island the clean and crisp navy and white nautical stripes are the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe.

Now the actual fragrance is the perfect combination of citrus, sweet musk and spice, when I first read the notes that it contained I immediately thought it was going to be the perfect scent for your guy or even the perfect Fathers Day gift, but I was completely wrong (well kind of). It is the perfect scent for your guy but it is also the perfect scent for yourself! It is hands down one of my favorite unisex scents that I have ever smelt in my life, hence why I can not stop wearing it! The actual oils in this parfum will blow your mind, some of my favorite notes are the black pepper, white lilies, sandalwood and musk (told you it was the perfect combination!) This is going to be such a beautiful addition to my Bond No.9 collection and I have really been enjoying blending it with my Saks For Her, Mothers Day and Sag Harbor. Hope you all enjoy and until next time Happy Blending!

Favorite One Piece Bathing Suits

Screen Shot 2014-02-26 at 3.26.57 PM

With warm weather on our horizon, unless like me you live in a place where its summer all year round, then spring means the dreaded bathing suit shopping!!! I have an upcoming cruise and have had to start my yearly search for a new suit a little early and I have to share I feel like I have had such a hard time. Maybe because I am too picky but when you put on a bathing suit you just have to feel good in it and I haven’t had that awesome feeling a lot this swim suit season. So in my endless search I have put together a short little list of my favorite on piece bathing suits (more style to come soon don’t worry!) in all different budget ranges. I have to say that I really have found the cutest one pieces this year and I encourage you all to give one a try. With so many patterns, materials and designs they really are fashion forward and trendy, but regardless you have to feel great in what you wear. I hope that this helps you all and that at least one of these make you feel simply amazing like I know you all are.
